It's beginning to look at bit like Christmas

...however, I am still mulching the garden, and we had some wonderful rain in the early morning. I just sat and watched it out my sewing window, and then this afternoon I have enjoyed tucking up all the plants in another garden bed with my luscious pea straw. I still have one bale to go and the back garden will be done - for summer!

I have been busy this week stippling my sister's quilt for christmas. I'm up to the binding now, so can see an end in site. I am very happy with how it has turned out. I'm sure she'll love it.

My great friend Barking Mad gave me these georgous leaves for a christmas gift. I am thrilled with them.

I've been in to the Patchwork Shop to collect my winnings for my my Apron. Some lovely fabrics to play with in the holidays. Only one week of school to go ... and counting. School sleep over last week at Soverign Hill with Grade 2's and full day walking around the following day with the Grade Ones. Exhausted Friday night!
